What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure where localized fat is broken up and sucked out of the body. Liposuction is performed by making small incisions in the body in order to insert a thin tube, or cannula, through the incision into localized fat deposits between the skin and muscle of the patient. A suction pump or syringe is then used to suck out localized fat deposits.
What is the recovery time after Liposuction?
Recovery time after liposuction is usually one to two weeks, depending on the area of the body and the amount of localized fat sucked out. You will see the end results of Liposuction within one to four months after the procedure.
Is Liposuction Painful?
Liposuction is painful but most surgeons perform the procedure under general anaesthesia to ensure that patients don’t feel pain. They also prescribe painkillers for relieving pain after surgery.
Is Liposuction Permanent?
The liposuction procedure permanently removes localized fat. The patient’s body will retain its contour after liposuction, provided the patient does not gain weight.
What is Non-Surgical Liposuction?
Liposuction procedures that do not use injections or incisions are called non-surgical liposuction procedures. These procedures are performed using laser energy, ultrasound, cryotherapy or radiofrequency.
